Default Engine starts, but dies when trying to Rev

My brand new HS-142F four stroke starts but dies immediately when I try to rev it. It feels like the engine is choking and loses power when the throttle is opened. I couldn't gauge how much oil I should put in because the dipstick reading instructions for the HS was very vague. I also played with the idler screw on the carburetor, but this doesn't really seem to be the issue; the engine does idle. It simply loses power when I try to go anything above an idle state. What could be the issue here?

Could it be that I put too much oil in?? Okay, ne help would be greatly appreciated...
